[Photograph of Sunday Break II Concert]

Description: Photograph of general view of Sunday Break II rock concert from on stage taken by Marlon Taylor. The concert was held at Steiner Ranch. Featured artists included The Band, Chicago, England Dan & John Ford Coley, Fleetwood Mac, Peter Frampton (who played Sunday Break in May of the same year), and Steve Miller Band. Sunday Break II was not as successful as the first Sunday Break due to the oppressive heat and trouble for crowds getting to the festival. The crowd estimated at 45,000 out of an expected 100,000; and the income gathered $350,000 out of an expected $800,000, forcing MayDay Productions (event organizers) into bankruptcy.
